I Wish I Could Forget You Lyrics

[GIORGIO, spoken]
Fosca, it will be light soon, I should be going

[FOSCA, spoken]
Would you do me a great favor before you leave?
Would you write a letter for me?

[GIORGIO, spoken]

[FOSCA, spoken]
My dearest Fosca...

(Giorgio stops writing and looks at her, annoyed.)


(Giorgio resumes writing.)

[Giorgio, spoken]
"My dearest Fosca"

I wish I could forget you
Erase you from my mind
But ever since I met you
I find, I cannot leave the thought of you behind
That doesn't mean I love you...

That doesn't mean I love you...

I wish that I could love you...

I know that I've upset you
I know I've been unkind
I wanted you to vanish from sight
But now I see you in a different light
And though I cannot love you
I wish that I could love you

For now I'm seeing love
Like none I've ever known
A love as pure as breath, as permanent as death
Implacable as stone
A love that, like a knife, has cut into a life
I wanted left alone
A love I may regret
But one I can't forget

I don't know how I let you
So far inside my mind
But there you are and there you will stay
How could I ever wish you away?
I see now I was blind
And should you die tomorrow
Another thing I see:
Your love will live in me

I remain... Your Giorgio

(Giorgio signs the letter and blots it.)
